Frozen Pipe Services
When the Temperature Drops, Your Pipes Are at Risk
Every winter, homeowners across the nation have to deal with frozen pipes. The cold temperatures often freeze the water in your pipes—turning them into solid ice. Since water expands when frozen, it causes the pipes to burst. If your pipes burst or crack during cold days, Benjamin Franklin Plumbing is ready to help. We assist our clients around the clock because we know plumbing issues don’t always occur at convenient times. The best part is we don’t charge extra fees for weekends, evenings, or holidays. Your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed!
If your pipes are frozen and cracked, contact us today for an estimate at (800) 259-7705!
What Happens When Your Pipes Freeze?
It only takes a few hours, or even minutes, for frozen pipes to burst. Bursts popes can cause thousands of gallons of water to leak throughout your house—damaging your property and costing you money. The damage can even leave your home uninhabitable for weeks. When you notice a frozen pipe, you should contact our plumbers as soon as possible so that we can assess the damage and get it fixed!
What to Do If Your Pipes Have Frozen
The first thing you should do is shut off your water main to take the pressure off the pipes and minimize flooding. If the ice blockage is visible, you might be able to thaw it temporarily with a hairdryer. For long-term care—or if your pipes aren’t visible—you will need the assistance of professional plumbers. If you notice a lack of water, you should contact a plumber immediately to prevent further damage.
Some pipes that frequently freeze include the following:
- Exposed pipes
- Water supply pipes in unheated areas
- Pipes in walls that have little or no insulation
